CBD vs THC - What Is It?

CBD vs THC - What Is It?

Information in the world today moves at remarkable speeds with new ideas and products being implemented into our daily lives through social media, advertising, news, and the people around us. This trend of information surplus has allowed for products such as CBD to rise in the health industry and gain an immense amount of attention in a very short period of time with most people unaware of some very important differences. CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is most commonly used as an additive to bath bombs, nutritional and pharmaceutical supplements, chapstick, body oils, and even coffee. In fact, cannabidiol is also being used in many health studies. Doctors and scientists have utilized CBD as treatments for depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, epilepsy and many other health concerns. While its benefits are clearly visible, most people are still unaware as to what is actually is. So here's the break down.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from hemp, a cousin plant to marijuana. Both of these plants come from the cannabis plant family; however, people often categorize Marijuana and Hemp to be the same thing, but they are not.   Hemp is cultivated for its many industrial uses of the fiber and for full spectrum CBD’s beneficial health properties. While marijuana is cultivated for its THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) effects on the mind, and is known to have anywhere from 5-30% THC content. Whereas CBD never exceeds .5%, thus it is impossible to achieve a high through CBD derived from hemp. The World Health Organization states, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” 

There is a growing debate on the federal legalization of harvesting and selling marijuana nationally. Currently marijuana's recreational use is limited, only being legal in some states such as California, Colorado, Oregon and Nevada among others.   However, hemp, and the CBD derived from it, is commercially legal in all 50 states at the Federal level; although each state may have different regulations..
